Jewelry by Jaclyn has been in business since 2006, when Jaclyn realized with the amount of completed projects under her belt, she could fill a small store. And she did, in a way, by having a show from her home. Since 2006, several more home shows have ensued as well as stands at several craft fairs and the opening of an online shop at http://www.jewelrybyjac.etsy.com/ .
Jaclyn’s work is constantly evolving and she is excited to share her newest pieces at the Hillsdale Library. A recent visit to Walden Pond (where Thoreau wrote Walden, of course) has led to many nature-inspired pieces featuring leaves, feathers, and woodland creatures like owls and raccoons. Jaclyn’s perpetual obsession with fairy tales also seems to be at its peak as many pieces are enchanting, sweet, and fit for a princess. Lastly, there is a collection of items inspired by her favorite holiday tradition: reading Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
